Airwallex and Alpaca Partner to Deliver Cost-Efficient Experience for Global Investors Purchasing U.S. Stocks

Airwallex, a leading global payments and financial platform for modern businesses, today announced its partnership with Alpaca, a developer-first API brokerage platform, to support Alpaca’s global payments and foreign exchange (FX) needs. The announcement comes on the heels of several recent Airwallex wins in the wealthtech category, including Public and OurCrowd.

Alpaca’s mission is to open financial services to everyone on the planet. Embedding Airwallex’s FX solutions into Alpaca’s offering helps make it easy for Alpaca’s broker partners to offer their retail customers a seamless local currency investing experience, without the headaches of converting their native currency into U.S. dollars.

Through the partnership with Airwallex, Alpaca and its broker partners can leverage Airwallex’s global network of local collection and payment rails to support funding and settling transactions in a wide range of currencies, starting with Australian dollars (AUD), Canadian dollars (CAD), Euros (EUR), and many others, all while effectively managing the FX risk.

Founded in Melbourne in 2015, Airwallex is headquartered in Singapore with 20 offices around the world. With around 1,400 people globally and more than 100,000 customers including Brex, Navan, and SHEIN, Airwallex has built financial infrastructure and global payment capabilities that help companies unlock new opportunities and grow without limits.
